Magical Moorten Botanical Garden and Cactarium

We’ve been to the wonderful Moorten Botanical Garden twice. Our first visit to Moorten was on our wildflowerpalooza trip. We left Lake Elsinore headed to Palm Springs for lunch, a picture with the Sonny Bono statue and a quick visit to see the cacti on our way to Borrego Springs. We had heard from otherContinue reading “Magical Moorten Botanical Garden and Cactarium”

Friday Garden F*ck Ups: Pampas Grass

FOR SHAME!!!! What the living f*ck was I thinking? I look so proud in front of it with those terrible sunglasses on. This was way back before we took plant ID classes at City College and one of our worst f*ck ups ever. Back then we thought all the plants growing along the highways inContinue reading “Friday Garden F*ck Ups: Pampas Grass”

Pt. Richmond Fairy Home and Garden Tour

We left Davis for the first time in forever to go visit friends Pat and Bob in Point Richmond before we head back to Wisconsin. Pat and my mom met about 44 years ago in Madison when they were both pregnant (my mom with me). Whenever we visit I always want to check out theContinue reading “Pt.

Rad Allen Centennial Rock Garden

I’ve been thinking about rock gardens lately, specifically The Allen Centennial Garden on UW-Madison’s campus. It’s pretty amazing in general, but their rock garden is so good that NARGS (North American Rock Garden Society) even had a meeting in Madison. In 2019 it even won the Frank Cabot Public Rock Garden Award. I’d never seenContinue reading “Rad Allen Centennial Rock Garden”

Friday Garden F*ck Ups: The Agave

Avert your eyes Danger Garden I’m about to talk smack about an Agave. It’s not a bad Agave, just poorly placed. Did we bother to google Agave americana or even “blue agave” before getting one off of craigslist for free? Nope. We may not have had iphones back then, but we did have wifi andContinue reading “Friday Garden F*ck Ups: The Agave”

King Of Containers: Pot Incorporated

Way back when we lived by the beach in San Francisco Todd Holloway, owner of Pot Incorporated stopped by for a visit while on a road trip down the coast with his dog Carl. Dude is so good at not only designing containers, but choosing plant combos to die for. I’ve been thinking about containersContinue reading “King Of Containers: Pot Incorporated”

Crazy Coleus Lady

Where is the cheapest place in Dane County to get multi-packs of coleus? I’m serious, guard your coleus if I’m around. I’m going to be travelling with little baggies of sphagnum moss for taking cuttings where ever I go. It’s really the only plant you need for pretty much everything and so easy to propagate viaContinue reading “Crazy Coleus Lady”
